BP have around 1,100 petrol stations throughout the UK, and about 200 of these feature their flagship combination of M&S Simply Food and Wild Bean Cafe. They are the brand which are most associated with having a vast variety of operators, some of which include MRH, Euro Garages, Sewell, MFG, HKS and Rontec, as well as many independent operators.

Last year, BP refurbished some of its Wild Bean Cafe outlets in its network. Most of them are now a bit bigger and feature a brick design to the rear, making them look a lot more appealing.

In recent years, Sewell have phased out their Total/Londis Express forecourts in the Hull area in favour of a new BP and Sewell on the Go scheme. They all feature Costa Express and some have been completely refurbished, ending up being increasingly popular with customers.

Euro Garages use BP at their recently built flagship Rivington services on the M61, and also at many other forecourts they operate, however they mostly use Esso.

Motor Fuel have phased out Murco at all of their sites and have replaced them with BP, Jet, Texaco and Shell. They all feature a Costcutter store.

BP Connects are usually company-run forecourts which feature the own brand Wild Bean Cafe. They are mostly quite big and are new built, resulting in a similar design throughout their network. They are the modern version of BP Express Shopping (which has retained its name as the operator of its company owned sites), a lot of which were former Safeway partnership stores. BP Connect is slowly dying out in favour of M&S Simply Food.

Partnership with M&S Edit

There are around 200 BP forecourts which are now branded M&S Simply Food and also feature the Wild Bean Cafe. The majority of these are former BP Connects, and are still branded as BP Connect with M&S too. They have proven very popular with customers due to being a well known brand and as they sell a lot of different M&S branded products. Many people do their weekly shopping here.
